how can i be notified when abort execuation button is called

I don't believe this is true for compiled executables... I certainly hope the OP is not expecting end users to run programs from the DEV environment.

If you hide just the abort, (and optionally the entire menu), CTRL+. is not available.

 

The VI can still be aborted, if it's used as a SubVI and it's caller is aborted, or with the abort method (if the Vi is top level).

 

Especially when designing a reuse library, you can't impose requirements like "don't abort your code" on users. The library should simply behave...

I tested it, even tested with modal and other settings, Ctrl+. worked with no menu or toolbar visible.

How about when it's an executable instead of running in the DEV environment.

I did not test an exe, I thought we were talking about dev stuff. It doesn't work in an exe

Yes, you have to explicitly hide the abort.

I just did as well. At least in 22Q3 dev environment:

 

  • Deselecting "Show toolbar when running" does not disable the keyboard shortcut.
  • Deselecting "Show Abort button" does disable the keyboard shortcut.
  • The default "Top-level application window" preset deselects both of those options, which (as you might expect) does disable the keyboard shortcut.

But you really should.
